OLD LYME, CT — JUNE 2, 2015 — A poster presentation was awarded to the "GAIN (EnGAging an Interdisciplinary Team for NSCLC Diagnosis, Personalized Assessment & Treatment) Europe Collaborators", which included the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP), American College of Chest Physicians (CHEST), and The France Foundation (TFF).

The project involved a series of 12 one-day curricula throughout Europe on lung cancer education. The curricula incorporated learner-centric elements, including an interactive, audience participation "tumor board" session followed by four breakouts with hands-on experience and ended with a team approach to working on case scenarios of lung cancer diagnosis and management via a problem-based learning “Practical Approach” method. The honorable-mention award for this poster was on behalf of the Alliance Industry Summit’s Educational Planning Committee/Best in Class Outcome Practices Sub-Committee, during the Best in Class Outcome Practice opening session at the recent AIS held in Philadelphia on May 11th. The session showcased high-quality outcomes that effectively reported the measured impact of educational initiatives that have been successful in addressing identified gaps through education that resulted in quality of patient care improvements and/or behavior change and/or health care provider knowledge, competence, confidence, and performance. The GAIN collaborators were awarded a certificate of achievement for their expertise in program execution and outcomes methodology for this project.
